These convertibles will all add dealer-option five-spoke wheels with Stingray-logo center caps, while the interior adds suede upholstery, carbon-fiber trim and special sill plates. If that's not enough, the Premiere Edition roadster also comes standard with optional extras like the performance exhaust and Magnetic Selective Ride Control fitted as standard. The whole package is finished off with a $920 five-piece fitted luggage set from Thule.
When this limited-edition convertible goes on sale early next year, Chevy will be asking – and likely have no problem getting – $77,450 for it (including destination). That's about $10,000 over a stock 3LT Z51 convertible, and about a $4,000 premium over a fully-loaded model fitted with all of this car's options. Is that measure of exclusivity worth the extra four grand? If for resale value alone, we're sure at least 550 buyers will think so.
DETROIT – From a scale model to the real car, there are many ways to give America's iconic sports car, the Corvette, this holiday season. This Top 10 list, with prices from $12 to $77,450, should make it easier to find the perfect gift for any Corvette enthusiast.

The Premiere Edition also features unique wheels with "Stingray"-logo center caps, "Stingray"-logo interior sill plates and a five-piece set of Corvette-branded luggage from Thule – all from the Corvette Accessories catalog.
